I had the pleasure of presenting at a couple of events last week that covered Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. One of the most common questions was from customers who had installed SharePoint to evaluate it, but were not sure if it was setup correctly or if they were managing it correctly.
I was asked to recommend any books that could help. Well you are in luck you can go to your traditional book shop or your favorite online reseller and get 'Office SharePoint Server 2007 - Administrator's Companion' TODAY.
Yes I know it's a Microsoft Press book and yes I work for Microsoft, but believe me I did look for other titles and this is currently the best available to buy today. If you are having problems finding it then I have included a link to it on Amazon UK.
I agree completely, it is very common that people are insecure whether they've set up WSSv3 or MOSS07 right. The way the configuration works (and tells you what other tasks you have to do after the Wizard has run) I believe contributes to that too.
I disagree on the book you recommend ...I've had it for a while and not a single question I had was answered in it ...i think it barely scratches the surface.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment on this post. It would seem you are already an accomplished SharePoint expert. I had a look at your internet site and I can see you have been using SharePoint for sometime now and that your company internet site looks to be running on SharePoint 2007 http://www.finalcandidate.com/en/tandp/Pages/default.aspx which is great.
I still think this is a great book for people administrating SharePoint as a next step after the wizard or for more detailed information. I have yet to see any others published for the 2007 release.
If you do happen to find a good book then please feel free to come back and comment. It would be very welcome.
